Jingle Belles 36 : Love's Labor Day Lost

Happy Monday! Hope everyone is enjoying a holiday ... the last one of summer ! It's hard to beleive that summer is over ... the kids go back to school this week and it seems like Christmas is just around the corner!!!! This week at Jingle Belles, Stef and Lauren are inviting us to CASE  a past JB could be one of theirs , a Belle's  submission or even your own!!  Sounds like fun, doesn't it!!! I spent so much time browsing through many of the great submissions and  I am so impressed and amazed by all those talented crafters!!!! Still, I had to find just one creation that I would CASE, boy, was that difficult!!! I selected Leslie's beanie giftcard holder for mine - I  just love the felt trim and those cute buttons,so adorable!

You can check out all the details, including a link to a SplitcoastStampers tutorial, on her card here.

 Here's my version of Leslie's beanie giftcard holder....

I didn't have felt for the trim so I used my swissdot embossing folder instead and for a little bling I used red glitter cardstock for the hat and a green glitter brad for the pompom.
 I think this has to be one of my favorite challenges so far!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!!! Have a great day!!!!
